About the Show

Tarek is a self-proclaimed real estate genius with determination and drive. Christina is Tarek's picture-perfect wife, who Tarek's friends still can't believe he landed. In each episode of Flip or Flop , Tarek and Christina flip a new property. From the nail-biting purchase at auction, to the frustrating renovations and maddening showings, to the giddy acceptance of an offer, we'll follow along as these two relatively novice flippers try their hand at the toughest game in town. From purchase to resale, weaving their personal lives within the story of the flip. From paying cash, sight unseen, for a property at auction, through the hapless remodeling process, to the frantic sale, this young couple is putting everything they have into this venture.

Keeping Up With The Joneses

Tarek and Christina follow up on a large family home in Fullerton, CA that is listed for $389,000. They tour the house with their contractor and discover that it will need extensive rehab. Not only will the interior need a full remodel, but the whole roof will also need to be replaced, multiple balconies will need to rebuilt from scratch, and the crumbling driveway needs to be entirely re-poured. However, it might be worth it because Tarek thinks a house this nice, in this area, will sell over $600,000, giving them potentially huge profit margins. But, the 1960's floor plan could seriously hinder its sale price. So Tarek and Christina check out a neighboring home with the identical floor plan that has been recently updated. They like it so much that they decide to replicate the house by opening up their kitchen and master bathroom walls. If they can modernize this mid-century home, it will appeal to a higher end buyer, but the scale of this remodel is pricey. So they cannot afford any unforeseen delays especially because they have to cover $600 a month in HOA fees themselves, until they can finish the rehab and sell the house. Will keeping up with the Joneses make them Flip or Flop?

Underwater Flip

Tarek and Christina spot a gorgeous family home in an upscale neighborhood in Cypress, CA. They tour the house with their contractor, Izzy Battres, to see if they want make an offer, and are pleased to discover that the house has a large open floor plan, a downstairs bedroom (perfect for an older family member or a nanny), a bonus family room as well as a large designated office space upstairs. However, Izzy begins to point out troubling signs of water damage that cannot be thoroughly investigated until they own the house, because it will mean ripping into walls. But Tarek and Christina think a home like this could sell for over $700,000, so, even in light of their contractor's warnings, they decide the potential profit margins are worth the risk, and they get the house for $490,000. Construction begins and they quickly discover that the water leaks have created a severe case of black mold, and the rehab costs skyrocket. Will the costs of fixing this mess eat onto their profits, or will leaking pipes leave them underwater?

Awkward Floor Plan

Tarek and Christina snoop a foreclosure in Yorba Linda, CA. After casing the property and looking through the windows, they're confident the house is in good shape. So they head to bid on the house at a foreclosure auction. During a high-voltage bidding war, Tarek and Christina spend $393K on the property, which is more than they planned. Tarek and Christina want to flip this house in 30 days, so they walk through their house with their contractor, Dan Messina. It has a very awkward layout, with the master bedroom located between the front door and the kitchen. But much worse, one of the bedrooms turns out to be an unpermitted loft conversion! They thought they were buying a 4-bedroom house, but it's actually a 3-bedroom house! If they have to market this house as a 3-bedroom, they will actually LOSE money and will have to write a check to sell the house. Are Tarek and Christina going to Flip or Flop?

Flop House Flip

Tarek snoops a small four bedroom foreclosure with a pool in La Mirada as Christina heads to the public foreclosure auction where the house is on the docket. Tarek calls Christina, and from his evaluation of the house, Christina bids and wins the house for $210,000, a smokin' deal! However, as soon as Tarek and Christina open the door, it's clear that this dilapidated house needs a full rehab from tip to tail. It's a disgusting, smelly, confusing mess of rooms, with piles of trash, and graffiti everywhere. Tarek seriously underestimated the home's rehab costs, as initial bids from contractors come in at $50,000 and up. The cost alone for cleaning up this flop house is expensive, but when they begin to discover a bevy of unpermitted construction, Tarek and Christina are forced to demo unpermitted additions and spend money to decrease their square footage! With a skyrocketing budget and a rehab plan, which actually might be de-valuing the house, will this flop house Flip Or Flop?

Hard Money Blues

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a listing in an upscale neighborhood of Whittier, California and although the entire home will need some serious updating from its original 1969 finishes, the renovation appears to be mostly cosmetic and comparable properties suggest great potential for profit. With all their money tied up in other flips, Tarek and Christina must secure a hard money loan to make an offer on the home; but that alone will cost them hundreds of dollars a day in interest and one never knows what budget-busting financial hazards could be lurking behind those popcorn-textured walls. Can their contractor renovate this big house in a small timeframe or will unforeseen problems leave the project a day late and a dollar short? Could this high-end home and its expensive loan leave Tarek and Christina singing the hard money blues?

Too Small to Fail

Tarek and Christina find a short sale home listed in Whittier, California that's rather small but the asking price of $275,000 looks enticing next to comparable properties in the area. With their own resources spread thinly across other flips, Tarek and Christina have only $300,000 to spend on the home and its renovation. Despite their rigid debt ceiling, they're convinced they can purchase and rehab the home within a strict budget. But as problems are discovered and the margins start getting tighter, Tarek and Christina hope they can turn a profit on this investment home that is too small to fail.

Custom Craftsman

Tarek and Christina are contacted by their friend and fellow flipper, Jessie Rodriguez, who has purchased a craftsman style home in an historic area of Santa Ana, California. While Jessie specializes in renovating older, architecturally significant homes, Tarek and Christina are experts at bringing in a flip on schedule and on budget. It will take both skillsets to finish and sell this project for a profit, and Jessie is hoping to strike a partnership. Can Tarek, Christina, and Jessie combine the speed and cost of a flip with the detailed craftsmanship of a renovation to deliver on this custom craftsman flip?

Dirty, Dated and Undesired

Tarek and Christina spot a home listing online that's set for an auction that afternoon and based on neighborhood comps, the dirty and dated house looks like a bargain. By outward appearances, all it needs is an inexpensive cosmetic rehab. But after an unusual auction and a bevy of surprise issues, this dirty, dated and undesired home has quickly become more work than Tarek and Christina ever imagined.

Hilltop Hangup

Tarek and Christina come across a short sale listing in a desirable, hilly neighborhood of La Mirada, California. Although its price as compared to recent sales in the area leaves a tighter profit margin than they would like, the 1990s home is newer than the investment properties they typically buy and shouldn't need as much renovation as a result. With Tarek and Christina's usual contractor tied up by their growing roster of flip properties, they turn to a new contractor who comes recommended by fellow flippers. Will this newer home and new contractor make for a straightforward flip or could surprise costs and small mistakes leave Tarek and Christina risking a flop on this hilltop hangup?

Trickle Down Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a home for sale in Chino, California that's rundown, overgrown, and in desperate need of cosmetic help. The price is fair and recent sales in the area show potential for profit. But right away there's a problem and Tarek and Christina are left wondering if this is an isolated issue or sign of what's to come. Will they turn a profit on this home or could mounting problems threaten to topple this trickle down flip?

Abandoned Flip

With the house in various states of disrepair, Tarek and Christina are excited to have a clean slate for design but cautious about the problems that could be lurking in a homeowner's do-it-yourself renovation. Can Tarek and Christina bring this abandoned home out of renovation limbo or could their own rehab woes turn this project into an abandoned flip?

Tarek and Christina scope out a house in Fullerton, California that's in a good neighborhood and shows potential for profit. And while it seems a little high-priced for the area, if they can buy it for the right price and stay on budget, it could be a great flip.

A Pig In A Poke

Tarek and Christina spot a trust sale in Fullerton, California. It's tenant occupied which means they cannot inspect the house, but the numbers look good and after touring a comparable, renovated listing, they feel confident enough to make an offer. Tarek and Christina arrive at their new house ready to design but that will have to be put on hold as they could not have anticipated what they find. Can they keep this flip on track or will a bevy of surprise expenses deliver them a flop? Have Tarek and Christina fooled themselves into buying a pig in a poke?

Junk Yard Flip

Tarek and Christina spot an interesting property in Long Beach, California as they peruse the day's listings. It's a very small house with a massive structure in the backyard and because the house is currently tenant-occupied, Tarek and Christina will have to make their buying decision without the benefit of personally inspecting the property. The potential value of the back structure is too much to pass up and Tarek and Christina make a deal to buy the property; but when they arrive as the new owners, they are shocked by what they find. Can Tarek and Christina transform this trash heap into a treasure trove or will they be left wishing they never laid eyes on this junk yard flip?

Will Tarek and Christina be able to partner with Pete to score their biggest profit yet, or could they lose it all in this natural disaster flip?

A Flip With The Enemy

Tarek and Christina are busier than ever with their growing business. As a result, when a fellow flipper contacts them about partnering on a house and he wants to split the time, money, and profit 50/50, they are very interested. But flipping is not a team sport; it's a competitive business and trade secrets are a closely guarded commodity. Can Tarek and Christina play both mentor and business partner?

Pipe Dreams

Tarek and Christina come across a For Sale By Owner property in Garden Grove, California. This type of sale is always exciting for a flipper because it means no real estate agent commissions and an opportunity to negotiate a fair sale price. The house is in good shape and looks to need only cosmetic repairs and improvements. But in the business of flipping, one can rarely judge an old house by its finishes and it is truly what's on the inside that counts. Can Tarek and Christina deal with the hidden problems of an old house or will their hopes of a fast and easy flip turn out to be nothing but pipe dreams?
